NBC Comedy Blocked in Utah Rolls Out Early on Digital Platforms Deadline
The NBC comedy series that was refused by a Utah affiliate has received an early digital rollout, reports Deadline.com.
"The New Normal" is now available on Hulu, iTunes, Amazon, Nbc.com and Xbox, part of NBC's strategy to give new series a two-week sampling window, the story notes.
"The New Normal" debuts Sept. 11. The next new show to get an early rollout will be the drama "Revolution," with the pilot slated to air online on Sept. 4.
As previously reported, Salt Lake City station KSL-TV balked at the show, which portrays two gay men raising a baby.
